High Hopes Challenge #27

Hello and Happy Tuesday! It's a gray and rainy day here in New England, but it's school vacation week, so I really don't mind...lol! Here is my card for this week's High Hopes Challenge. We are to distress our creations. I started off with my new tractor image from High Hopes. It's colored up with Prismacolor Pencils and OMS. After it was cut to size, I ran my distressing tool along the top and bottom. Then I added a thin strip of Bashful Blue and a torn piece of Real Red to the top and bottom of that. I glued those layers to my Bashful Blue card base. Even though it's a little early for Father's Day, I can keep this card in my stash and be ahead of the game for once in awhile. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up's retired When I Grow Up set. I finished it off with a polka dot button from Doodle Bug Designs and a little piece of red gingham. Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope that it's sunny and dry in your neck of the woods...Toodles! :D
